Trust me, its EA, not DICE. I'd be willing to bet good money that DICE on it's own could produce a better quality game than under the shadow of EA. EA is a hyperparanoid company that maintains an iron fisted, permalock grip on everything they own, primarily for the good of the bottom line. If you need to blame anyone for the quality of games EA publishes, you can only really blame EA.

(Which is clearly evident by the way SUPERB games that were published by stand-alone companies became utter disasters, either because of endless DRM issues or just terrible game concept and design AFTER being purchased by EA. I guess one could point to just about all EA games, as there aren't really all that many the company started on its own...most were acquired via small game company purchases. Personally, I only buy EA games if I absolutely have no other option...i.e. If my friends are all playing BF4, and they want me to join in, my only two options are to ditch my friends, or begrudgingly fork over money to EA... tongue.gif Sadly, I am my own worst enemy when it comes to Crysis...but at least I was able to buy the previous versions on Steam...)

I do blame EA cause when they say jump DICE has to say how high
